    For someone who was so cross, Stroobz turned paper tiger pretty quick. I’d really like to know what his real name is. Anyone know?

    That was very entertaining but you definitely have the wrong idea about the mycitybynight peeps, they are far from jocks and so chilled they would roll you up into a joint and SMOKE you!!

    I get why your attempting a retaliation at the dismantling of your name on the MCBN blog, i’d be upset too….. but they at least got their facts more or less straight (albeit exaggerated) when grilling you. I’m not really sure why you attacked the whole ‘jock’ angle so intently though? There are other aspects that you could have focused on which would have hit closer to home, but unfortunately you took the wrong angle portraying your coming to be of very little validity. As a writer you have further hurt your own name more than provoked, the actually decent/useful, MCBN blog writers. M=Wasteman

    We were kinda rooting for you guys because MCBN’s response was so juvenile and overboard, and then you go and do exactly the same thing.

    Well fucking done brother. Putting together words like meth addict crack baby overbite dick fagget, is clearly an idiot with a vocab like malema’s sperm count, such like “STROOBZ”. Any uneducated dickbag can do that. But this! This is pure genius creativity. You def owned at this pissing competition. He cannot respond to this because he has already used all his insanely vulgar crappy vocab on “Letter to Avastar” and “I’m a fucking douche bag look at me put an X through the word Mahala”.

    you guys have no idea, do a little research and you will find the Mycitybynight crew are well educated chilled guys. They are way more likely to be found puffing a spliff on signal hill, than in a gym. Where does the steroids and the rage come from, just because you received some banter back from your poorly illustrated cartoons, seems like you guys are the ones who cant intellectually step up to the plate, but iam sure your mothers told you drawing pictures is a good way to express your inner feelings

    Alistar, you okes had such a good chance to come out on tops here. Unfortunatly missed the boat so badly. Steroids? Boytjies? then ending off that they are gay? eish. you guys started this shit? i dont understand why you are taking their response so badly? were you not expecting a response?

    The only person who actually looks realistic in your comics is Rodger Young!

    unfortunatly as a media buyer i have just taken you off our roster. Poor form, i was on your side untill you showed your true colours. LAME (i actually do hope one of you guys do end up getting a bit of a klap it will take away this “im untouchable online” attitude)

    @ Ex Mahala fan: You dont have to be a genius to see theyre not taking it badly but rather taking the piss.

    Also who cares if MCBN are a bunch of stoners and not jocks, the fact is that stroobz BEHAVED like a steroid pumping aggressive boytch with his ridiculous response.

    I personally feel that other than your cartoons not representing these guys very well you are a sad, comic drawer who has no life!! If you want to start shit, you are going to get it back. This come back was so lame and so far from the thruth as these guys arent like that at all.. SHAME! Go home to your parents k!

    What the fuck is wrong with MCBN support? Start shit? For fuck sakes it was a gentle jab in an otherwise funny fucking cartoon. MCBN then got serious with their “open letter” Max du Preez styles… and Mahala did what any other self-respecting blog would do… retorted with another funny fucking cartoon. Is it really that bad to have a laugh at yourself now and then? Or did mommy only ever tell you that the sun & moon shines our of YOUR arse and your alone?

  35. Kyle says:

    Ive been doing this for a long time and i have written politically motivated, socially inspired pieces that never got read by more than 50 people. My letter to Mahala is a perfect example as to why i write like I do now. 10 000 different people have read a piece that took me 20 mins to script as opposed to long endearing pieces that required weeks of research. Do i whore myself for hits? Yes and no. It does now help the direction in which i lean towards, and at the same time most of my pieces are based on current events. This has become my style which i have carved and whittled over the years. Im unapologetic about it and my readers know this. If you dont like my technique or approach you are not compelled to read, but it is my niche.

    Kyle – like your copy pasted comment above from your response to Avastar, your “technique and approach” is stale. While you might get cheap thrills from hits, it seems many others are tired of your unapologetic writing style.

  40. Swimfan says:

    If the only thing you can do is lashout and be a bastard every time you feel like some “hits” from the literary bong then perhaps you should spend more time carving and whittling your writing style on your politically motivated, socially inspired pieces which must be up to shit if you only ever get less than 50 readers.

    And then all the lousy little poets gathered round. Like a pack of beta dogs gathering behind their masters, desperate to be in parallel.

    This is a big public “cool or uncool” wank where tribal dorks like to label each other and slap a rock band sticker on it. I bet you Linkin Park would think that both sides of this debate are total douche bags. I know I do. Bunch of whimpering insecure children that need a following to agree that a band is cool or uncool. Fucking grow up all of you and go see the band or stay at home but do either because you like the music or you don’t like the music, or because you dig crowds or you don’t, not because you think they are cool or uncool or are represented by some faction of human beings to which you are stylistically opposed. Cunts. Fucking low pressure vessels for high pressure marketing garbage, all of you.

    Life is bigger than the playground you elitist-hipster-wankers busy dissing the unimaginative-body conscious-verbally retarded-so-I-resort-more-easily-to-violence wankers.

    Jeeesuss! Fuck you all.
